Z settings on machine inspector (ISSUE FIXED)

does anyone know I can get to the z setting on machine inspector? Thanks in advance

Your $102 value is the Z steps/mm…is that what you are looking for?

how do i access it to change it?

In Machine Inspector, Console write $$ and press Enter to display current values.
To change any value, simply in Console write $102=new value and press Enter
Restart controller, done.

is there a list of values that I can use to see what mine should be at? I have the 1000x1000 original x carve. the problem that Im having is that when I hit send on pic sender the machine goes way off to the right and z axis goes all the way up.

Do you have limit switches? Did you home the machine? Did you set your zero?

I found out the problem is with VcarvePro, because I did it using easel and no problems but when I use vcarve pro and picsender thats when the issue arises

Sounds like a G28 command embedded in the code exported from Vcarve, or a predefined start position relative to machine coordinates.
Could you post the gcode or the first 20 lines of code here?

John Champlain found the error, it was like you said in Vcarve position settings. Thanks for your input.

Interesting I have no weird positioning commands from v-carve, or did you set a x-y origin offset in your setup?
